Gary reported that Sal was upset about Jon Hein's presence at the Tom Petty concert. Sal came in to say he was insulted that Howard didn't invite him instead, but since Howard was "the leader of the pack," he respected his decision. Howard told Sal that he didn't know what he was talking about, so Jon came in to reveal he was invited by Gary. Howard then played tape of Sal retaliating in the hall by taking shots at Jon's work on the channels.
Later, Jon noted that Sal came over to him while the tape was being played to say it was "just a bit," which was almost more insulting than the initial shots. Sal did a mocking impression of Jon's Wrap-Up Show previews and said Jon was "no Howard Stern." Sal added that Howard was wrong for not inviting him because "if you're the general, you invite all the troops." Howard announced that he was inviting Jon to all social events just to spite Sal.
